More than a decade ago, I was constantly writing about the Jacksons family home, Hayvenhurst, in Encino, California, being in foreclosure. Michael had abdicated responsibility for paying the mortgage or the staff after his 2005 trial, and it financially it was a big mess. It was only after he died that his Estate shored up the trouble.
Last night, Michael’s unusually seemingly wonderful son, Prince Michael, hosted a charity event there. Wow, has the vibe changed. Prince’s Heal L.A. charity is very different than the old Heal the World Foundation. It’s actually organized under his alma mater, Loyola Marymount University. There’s no funny business. Prince really seems to have his head on straight. I like the fact that he’s always smiling in photos. Good for him.
Guests included his brother, who calls himself Bigi and we think of as Blanket. Once dangled out a hotel window, Bigi (which is ironic because that’s what they call Berry Gordy– BeeGee) is tall and lanky, the opposite of Prince physically. But what’s nice is that Michael’s three kids including Paris stick together and seem to have a loving, close relationship.
Lots of photos on Instagram. Here are a couple:
